XP Mode has gone into RC recently - you still have to download it.

Yep.

RC version doesn't really have many changes...I'd say the RTM will come out in a few weeks or sooner..

Hi yeah, I have 7 RTM installed, found xp mode, have yet to look at it..

Anyone here good with BCD?

Funny thing is I have 3 disks
Disk 0 have 3 staorage partitions non active
Disk 1 has 1 partition for XP
Disk 2 has 1 partition for 7
however after installing 7, the boot loader appears to be on disk 2, but disk 1 is the active boot drive, so I have no option to boot to 7....unless i leave the dvd in the drive, i only get xp and the old vista option which now has 7....

I have tried BCD but it doesnt show hard drive options, only the diferent partitions....

Windows Boot Manager

recoveryenabled Yes
osdevice partition=C:

resumeobject {a5bdc62f-8438-11de-919e-9e5265f8fce1}

Real-mode Boot Sector
---------------------
identifier {a5bdc62e-8438-11de-919e-9e5265f8fce1}
device partition=D:
path \NTLDR
description Microsoft XP SP3

So I guess the 7 boot loader is on disk 2, the old vista loader on the xp disk....
how do i get BCD to put hard drive\partition in!

Following Step 4 here you should be able to add a W7 entry:

Or, do it this way..

yep - working on the W7 RTM right now - so far with testing between this PC ( ultimate) and One I have set in the workshop with W7 Pro its "not to bad" -- Data transfer over the LAN is >>>>>>>>>>> :D Lot faster than Vista.
